    Good Morning Everyone,

    We need your help! On February 21st, Karen Penas will be leaving the hobby to turn a new leaf and we at New Wave would like to help her. As many of you know, Dave Penas, Karen's late husband, passed away several years ago. Dave was a valued and very active member of the TCMAS community. Many of you have shared GREAT stories to share about him and how he helped you. Over the years, we have helped Karen to keep the aquarium and the memories of Dave alive and thriving. Although Karen will NEVER forget Dave, it's time for her to let go of this piece of their lives and turn it into something great!

    HOW CAN YOU HELP?
    We will be organizing the sale of all the equipment, corals, fish and supplies.
    Karen has asked the 80% of all proceeds go to the American Heart Association who helped with with research involving Dave's condition and 20% to TCMAS where they spent time helping members, new and old alike.
    If there is anything you are interested in, please let us know and we will have it available at New Wave Aquaria for you to pick up after Feb. 21st.

    DETAILS:
    We will be draining the aquarium and bringing all equipment and livestock back to the store on February 21st....weather pending of course, as who knows if there will be another blizzard or if it''ll be -100 degrees. We will make a list of the equipment and prices before hand (I am working on it now) and post it. It is first-come-first-serve so act fast! Pickup will be confirmed after the completion of the tear down.

    CONTACT INFO:
    Email: support@newwaveaquaria.com
    Store Address: 14100 23rd Ave N, Plymouth MN

    **Please note: ALL proceeds will go to the Penas family! So, if you are looking for some new livestock, or used equipment at a GREAT PRICE, now is the time! Let's show the Penas family just how much love and support TCMAS offers to its members!

    Thank you for your time and STAY warm!

    Jen Wanner and Team New Wave

    Thank you so much for helping them with this!

    Such a tremendous gift for their family to share and further his memory. Karen will be happy to know we're using the proceeds to help fund our educational speaker event, I think this will be a great way to further help members as they always have.

    UPDATE on the Penas Project:

    After a long day yesterday, we did successfully bring all the livestock and equipment back to the store. I will be taking pictures of the corals and posting prices....there are LOTS of GREAT colonies including trumpets, duncans, favia, scroll coral and so much more. We will have 2 dedicated areas in the store for all of Karen and Dave's corals, which 100% of the proceeds go to TCMAS and the American Heart Association. I should have it all ready to go by tomorrow (Thursday).

    Well, I better get to work now...so much to do!

    Thanks again for your support!

    Jen
